AIRCRAFT DESIGN INSPIRED BY NATURE
AND ENABLED BY TECH Airbus models of 2050, takes biomimicry as a guiding principle for the design of forms and materials. Instead of being wrapped in opaque metal, will be composed of a web-like network of structural material like a skeleton. In fact, it’s inspired by the bone structure of birds! source
THE BULLET TRAIN INSPIRED BY
A KINGFISHER The Bullet Train running very fast, more than 300 km/h but making a lot of noise, until a railway engineer made the connection between the train and a bird with a question: 'Why such a fuss in the passage of the train through tunnels, while the kingfisher is able to dive from the air to catch its prey in the water without any splash?' And he got to: 'Thanks to its sharp beak!' Result of this inspiration: a more aerodynamic train, quieter, using 15% less electricity and even faster! (Teh Eng Koon / AFP - Getty Images file) The Shinkansen Japanese bullet train is inspired by the feathers of owls and beaks of kingfishers.

IN A HUMAN BODY “In
humans, neuromuscular control is body-wide and leads to greater ability to replicate specific movement. This can be obtained beginning slowly, increasing speed and repetitions constantly, allowing the nervous system, mind, and body to work at ever-greater levels. It's this connection from the brain to the body and exercise making an athlete win ” - The Company Body
IN A COMPANY BODY “REACTION
- the interval between the onset of a signal (stimulus) and the initiation of a movement response - has to be a measure of performance since a primary factor affecting a response is the number of possible stimuli, each requiring their own response to those that are presented. The more factors that could influence a decision, the longer the response may be, especially in team-playing.” - The Company Body

BUT WHY IS CONFLICT MORE
IN A HUMAN BODY “Each
part of a Human Body pretends a preferential treatment. Relax when tired or short of energy, attention if neglected, or need to be healed when hurt. And, the Brain, the locomotive of the Human Body’s train is, in principle, well disposed to give each part what it asks for. The situation becomes complicated if all the parts are given special privileges simultaneously. Since the conflict is intrinsic in the parts of the body themselves, being complementary and not independent.” - The Company Body
IN A COMPANY BODY “Each
‘organ’ of a Business Organization has a different personality, skills and needs. They can be ‘pivoted’ in broader categories of prototypes of ‘personality’ ‘skills’ and ‘needs’, nonetheless they remain potentially ‘in conflict’ since different and the price of dealing with such a ‘conflict’ is always high. Some people to hire are exceptional but too expensive. And some others simply have the basic necessary skills for a specific position. It is a choice ... Is it really a choice?” - The Company Body
IN A HUMAN BODY “Communication
signals are not perceived like orders being all cells, organs and systems essential to the whole body.” - The Company Body
IN A HUMAN BODY
IN A COMPANY BODY “Communication
signals are perceived like orders when parts feel no recognition or value of making the whole body.” - The Company Body
IN A COMPANY BODY “A
message only becomes information after the receiving system or subsystem assigns value to it by calculating an adjustment of its behavior in state space.” - James Miller (Living Systems)
